'tmux-hints' is a small shell script I wrote used to display a live cheat-sheet - or key-mapping notes - in a terminal running tmux.

As you switch from one program to another, your notes update automatically with that programs notes instead. Great for new key-combos and noobs alike.

After gaining some popularity, mainly from Reddit, I had some great feedback ready to put into action.

Version 0.3, improves on existing concepts and implementation mainly thanks to /u/vogelke and others commenting their experiences.

Main v0.3 developments include:

  • Better help docs formatting.
  • Better initialization and sanity checking.
  • Sensible terminal clearing
  • Better startup hint file initialisation.
